L.L.Bean Mountain Guide Parka


Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Fabric: Gore-tex 3Ply 3.09 oz, 40 dernier
Price Paid: $199

If you are a BEGINNER BACKPACKER ONLY this jacket is for you. It is relatively inexpensive and works ok for easy, light stuff. For those of us who need more, this is not a good jacket. The pockets ripped while putting gloves in during the winter, it is very loud, louder than my kichatna (199 @ Gear.com) and Mountain Guide (199 @ gear.com) and all together uncomforable. The pit zips never truly get easier. I would recommend the Marmot Preclip over this. DO NOT BUY if you are doing anything more than lite summer backpacking
